Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Mali military leader asks for end to ECOWAS economic sanctions” – below is their description.
Isolated and sanctioned by their neighbours, Malians have marked 60 years of independence from France. The muted celebrations come a month after the military coup that brought the country, and region, into crisis. Colonel Assimi Goita, leader of the National Committee for the Salvation of the People (CNSP) which overthrew Mali’s President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, was appointed vice president. Addressing reporters on Tuesday during a ceremony to mark 60 years of Malian independence, Goita said the recent nomination of civilian and former defence minister Bah Ndaw as interim president meant that West African leaders must end their trade embargo.
